To Prepare Sausage:
1.
Grind meat into a large mixing bowl, using medium Cutting Plate as
directed.
2.
Add recipe spices and herbs all at once to the meat. Lightly allow the
meat to fall through your hands once or twice, mixing very loosely (this
helps keep meat from becoming tough).
3.
Run the spiced meat mixture through the UltraGrind Turbo again, using
the medium Cutting Plate. Chill for 45 minutes. Keep the meat chilled
while making sausage to avoid melting the fat in the process, destroying
the sausage.
4.
If using animal casing, rinse as directed to remove salt. Place one
opening of a long, very damp casing tube over the Stuffing Funnel and
gently pull the remainder of the casing onto the funnel. Allow an
eight-inch portion of casing to drape over the front of the funnel.
5.
Select Half power and move the meat through the Grinder/Feeder Head
to the funnel. Just as the meat reaches the end of the funnel tube, press
Stop. Tightly tie the end of the casing close to the meat mixture. Cut off
the remaining casing.
6.
Press Half power and continue allowing the meat to fill the casing, slowly
moving the casing through as the meat continues to move. Do not
allow the casing to pack tightly; allow some room for tying off individual
sausages and expansion during cooking. When meat is through, press
Stop. Allow a few inches of additional casing on the end and tie securely.
7.
Form individual sausages as desired, twist and tie tightly to separate.
Use a pin or sharp fork to prick each sausage a few times before
cooking. Refrigerate until cooking. Thoroughly cook according to recipe
directions.

II. MAKING SAUSAGE
19
Use flavorful herbs and spices, such as garlic, fennel, dried thyme, ground
cinnamon, fresh cilantro, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, sweet paprika, ground
coriander and ground cumin. Add lemon or lime juice for brightness, if
desired. Each brings depth of flavor and sweet or spicy elements for interest.
When using chicken breast to make sausage, add a small amount of olive
oil to the meat mixture. Chicken breast will become too dry while cooking
unless oil is added. Try adding sweet dried fennel and apple for great
breakfast sausages.
Tie the ends of the casings as securely as possible. This lessens the potential
of meat falling out during cooking.
STEP-BY-STEP OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
STEP-BY-STEP OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
SAUSAGE MAKING HINTS & TIPS
Although animal casings are the most popular, it is possible to purchase
collagen or cellulose casings online. Obtain animal casings through your local
butcher, if possible.
Chill and re-chill your sausage meat mixture; it is extremely important that
the fat in the meat does not melt, which results in hard, dry cooked meat.

KIBBE MAKING HINTS & TIPS
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do NOT attach or use the Cutting Blade or Plates
when using the Kibbe Attachment)
To Prepare Kibbe:
1. Follow Steps 1-3 of Meat
Grinding Instructions.
Retainer Ring over the Kibbe
Attachment with the coneshaped portion facing outward.
2. Place centering hole of the
Kibbe Attachment onto the
end of the Food Auger shaft.
Align the Tabs on the Kibbe
Attachment with the Slots on
the Grinder/Feeder Head.
4. Secure the Attachment Locking
Ring to the threaded end of
the Grinder/Feeder Head. Turn
clockwise by hand until tight.
1.
Follow the Operating Instructions for the UltraGrind Turbo (see Steps
1-3).
2.
Follow the Directions for Making Kibbe to set up the Kibbe
Attachment and Kibbe Attachment Retainer Ring.
3.
Chill the prepared Kibbe dough for one hour before molding. Place a
large plate beneath the Grinder/Feeder Head.
4.
Press Half power. Add a large portion of the Kibbe dough to the
Food Tray and use the pusher to gently move the dough toward the
auger. The dough will move slowly as it forms a tube.
5.
When the dough tube appears, support the hollow tube with your
hands to help keep the tube intact. Cut it or break it when a long
tube has been formed and place on the plate. Keep a small bowl
of water nearby to moisten the dough as needed in this process.
Continue with the rest of the dough. Press OFF.
6.
Form the long tube into short tubes as desired and shape as
preferred.
7.
Add recipe mixture of sautéed ground meat, spices, onion, and garlic
and stuff each short tube with the mixture. Form into traditionallyshaped kibbe.
8.
Chill for 1 hour before deep frying to perfection.

FOOD PREPARATION HINTS & TIPS
Use fine-cracked bulgur wheat (#1) for best results when making the
dough. Add enough water to create a firm texture, but not a hard texture
to the bite.
Cutting Plate Chart
CUTTING PLATE
Grind the beef for the dough using the fine Cutting Plate attached to the
UltraGrind Turbo. Toss the freshly ground beef, prepared bulgur wheat,
fine-chopped onion, garlic, herbs and spices in a bowl and grind the
mixture again through the fine Cutting Plate. This will create a smooth
dough.

For the filling, if desired, you may substitute chopped almonds for the

1.
Wash hands thoroughly with antibacterial soap and water before
handling meat or assembling the UltraGrind Pro.
2.
Prior to grinding, clean all surfaces that will come in contact with the
raw meat with soap and hot water.
3.
Note that the more meat is handled, the more prone it is to
collecting bacteria. Beef also becomes tough, particularly after
grinding, if handled or compacted too much. Handle meat as little as
possible and as lightly as possible once ground.

HINTS & TIPS

4.
Before cutting into pieces, remove all pieces of connective tissue
from beef, poultry and pork. If “silverskin” is present, the thin
gelatinous layer of tissue, use a thin-bladed knife to remove it
completely. The more connective tissue that can be removed, the
more freely the meat will grind without becoming jammed or
dislodged.
5.
Cut meat into uniform cubes about 1-inch in size. Ensure that they
will be small enough to fit through the Grinder/Feeder chute.
6.
Chill, chill, chill. The meat and fat mixture will process through the
UltraGrind Pro much more easily when thoroughly chilled. After
cutting into cubes, place the meat in a single layer on a tray and chill
for 30 minutes prior to grinding.
7.
If you’d like a fine grind on meat, try first grinding it through the
Coarse Cutting Plate, then re-grinding through the Fine Cutting
Plate. This helps reduce the likelihood of meat jamming in the
grinder.
8.
When grinding, remove only as meat as can be placed on the Food
Tray at one time and keep the remainder in the refrigerator until just
prior to using. Fat breaks down quickly when warm.
9.
To absorb any fat that collects as grinding continues; try feeding a
dry piece of bread through the UltraGrind Pro occasionally.
27
1.
Remove all packaging and discard plastic bags.
2.
Wash all accessories and plates thoroughly in soapy, hot water. Do not
place parts in the dishwasher.
3.
Clean the Base with a soft cloth and warm water.
MAINTENANCE
28
28
1.
After grinding, unplug before cleaning.
2.
Remove and clean all parts thoroughly in hot, soapy water.
3.
If food particles or debris are stuck in blade or plates, use a cotton-tipped
swab to remove.
4.
Do not use harsh abrasives or cleaners on parts or Base while cleaning.
